[image]Woman in a Red Bodice and Her Child - Mary Cassatt
Mary Cassatt, who settled in Paris in 1874, was the only American to be invited to exhibit with the French Impressionists. She met Edgar Degas in 1877, and although she was not officially his student, his art had a lasting effect on the development of her own. His influence may be felt in the radical angles and eccentric composition of Mother and Child, a painting that also employs the mirror motif often found in the art of Edouard Manet, whose work Cassatt also admired...

[image]Cypresses (Les Cyprès) - Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh's rich correspondence with his brother Theo permits a rare insight into the conception and development of his works. Writing on the subject of cypresses, the focus of a number of works, van Gogh expressed his intense feelings about these majestic trees: "The cypresses are always occupying my thoughts; I should like to make something of them, because it astonishes me that they have not been done as I see them...

[image]Oniwakamaru and the Giant Carp Fight Underwater - Utagawa Kuniyoshi
Known by many names (including Kintarō, or Golden Boy), Sakata Kaidōmaru was an eleventh-century warrior of legendary strength who is said to have displayed great prowess as a fighter even in his early childhood. This celebrated image shows the well-muscled boy wrestling a giant carp under a waterfall. Kuniyoshi adds considerable depth and energy to the scene through his innovative depictions of a transparent stream of water and scattering white spray.Object metadata can change over time, plea...

[image]Landscape - Asher B. Durand
This quiet, enclosed landscape subject, very likely set in the Catskills or Adirondacks, represents the direction in which Asher B. Durand had moved American landscape art. After devoting his attention to expansive views that often included historical or moralizing narratives, by the 1850s he began to record in fine detail more intimate settings in which there was no palpable human presence. This very contained composition, although completed in the studio, is close in spirit to the highly detai...

[image]Jesus Meets His Mother (Jésus rencontre sa mère) - James Tissot
Although this episode cannot be found in the Gospel accounts, Tissot presents a scene traditionally included as one of the Stations of the Cross, a series of images, venerated chiefly by Catholics, that trace the events of Jesus’ final hours. At the fourth station, he meets his mother, Mary, after he falls while carrying his cross to Calvary. Her arms extended toward her son, Mary rushes to his side, accompanied by John the Evangelist and Mary Magdalene...

[image]The Bathers - William Etty
Best known for allegorical and mythological scenes that allowed him to demonstrate his great facility for rendering the nude figure, Etty here offers a subject that is more informal in tone if not in finish. Three female bathers gather around a boat moored on a riverbank, while a fourth clothed figure sits inside the barge. Etty painted several such scenes of summertime bathing during his career, most frequently calling on the landscape of the countryside of his native York, England.Object metad...

[image]Nude Woman Drying Herself (Femme au Tub) - Edgar Degas
Embracing the Impressionist credo of painting modern life, Degas concentrated on the daily rituals of urban dwellers. In this image, typical of his bather scenes, Degas captures his subject from behind and in motion as she vigorously towels herself after a bath. Bright light pours in from the window, highlighting her left breast but otherwise casting her body in shadow and limiting clear definition of both facial and bodily features...

[image]View from Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn - Rudolph Cronau
On special assignment for a German newspaper, Rudolph Cronau came to America to document its cities, frontier lands, and Native American populations for curious European audiences. His training at the Düsseldorf art academy, which emphasized careful draftsmanship, is clearly evident in this romanticized vista of Brooklyn’s famous Green-Wood Cemetery at sunset. Conceived in tones of black and white for reproduction, this watercolor features the Gothic-style entrance arch at center, the classic...

[image]Chicago World's Fair - Thomas Moran
Watercolor was the ideal medium for the late nineteenth-century landscape painter Thomas Moran, a follower of the British painter J. M. W. Turner who was drawn to dramatic natural features in places such as Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon. In this view of the lagoon and central buildings constructed for the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893—an extravagant, nationalistic salute to the westward advance of “civilization”—Moran bathed the scene in the glowing colors of a vivid ...

[image]Portrait of a Man - Frans Hals
Although the coat of arms in the upper left corner offers a clue to this sitter's lineage, his identity remains unknown. Extending his left hand through the simulated oval frame and into the viewer's space, the elegantly attired young man displays a painted miniature of a young woman, perhaps his betrothed or his wife. Before the advent of photography in the nineteenth century, portrait miniatures—both portable and intimate—permitted their owners an immediate access to the memory and appeara...

[image]They've Already Got a Seat (Ya tienen asiento) - Francisco de Goya y Lucientes
Los Caprichos, Goya's famous series of satirical etchings and aquatints, consists of eighty plates with text. "Since the artist is convinced that the censure of human errors and vices … may also be the object of painting," he wrote in 1799, "he has chosen subjects adequate for his work [Los Caprichos], from the multitude of follies and blunders common in every civil society, as well as from the vulgar prejudices, and lies authorized by custom, ignorance or interest, those that he has thought m...

[image]Van Brunt Homestead - James Ryder van Brunt
Throughout his career, the Brooklyn artist James Ryder van Brunt specialized in watercolors of local historic sites, farmhouses, and churches painted in a conventional, topographical style. His subject matter reflected a personal interest in the region’s Dutch heritage; his own ancestors had settled here in the seventeenth century. This picture depicts his grandfather’s homestead near what is now Third Avenue between Eighth and Eleventh streets (the Gowanus Creek is at the left).Object metad...

[image]The Legend of Santa Sophronia - Circle of Diego Quispe Tito
In colonial Peru, the ruling Spanish orchestrated the production and dispersal of religious imagery as testimony to the Christian mission of Spanish domination. This long narrative panel—which should be read from right to left—was produced in the Spanish colonial artistic center of Cuzco, Peru, a highland city that remained a stronghold of native Inca culture. While the artists working in Spanish-influenced painting guilds borrowed heavily from works by European artists in the local collecti...

[image]Yuki-Anna, The Frost Fairy - Bertha Lum
Bertha Lum often found subject matter in the highly popular stories of Lafcadio Hearn (1850–1904), an American writer living in Japan who adapted local legends and fairy tales for Western audiences. This woodcut illustrates the tragic story of Yuki-Anna, a wintry spirit who takes on human form in order to marry a young man she loves. When he betrays her secret identity, she transforms into snow and melts away forever.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object...

[image]A Gathering of Dervishes
Khalwa (Arabic for “seclusion”) in a natural setting was required of all dervishes, who might spend up to forty days in isolation as part of the requirements of the Path. In the outdoor gathering depicted here, the tall hat worn by some members of the group identifies them as Sufis. It is distinguished by its vertical grooves, which typically number twelve, referencing the twelve imams believed by Shica Muslims to be the rightful successors to the prophet Muhammad...

[image]Roman Landscape (Römische Landschaft) - Arnold Böcklin
Arnold Böcklin was one of many artists lured to Italy to sketch and paint the light-bathed countryside in and around Rome. Unlike Hubert Robert and Pierre Thuillier (whose works are also shown here), who found inspiration in timeworn monuments, the Swiss painter did not seek out famous landmarks but preferred rustic sites seemingly untouched by man. Although Böcklin includes the figure of a bather disrobing in the middle ground, her tiny form primarily underscores the vastness of nature, seen ...

[image]The Peaceable Kingdom - Edward Hicks
From about 1820, the self-taught artist and Quaker preacher Edward Hicks painted approximately sixty versions of The Peaceable Kingdom in an effort to reconcile his artistic vocation with his ardent faith. The subject is based on verses from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah that describe an Edenic world in which predatory animals (a leopard, lion, and bear) coexist in harmony with meeker creatures (a lamb, kid, and calf) and children...

The Philadelphia Realist painter Thomas Eakins executed exhibition watercolors during a brief period of his career. In this bird-hunting scene set in the marshes of southern New Jersey, he used dry, tightly controlled brushstrokes to model his central figure and more fluid washes for the landscape. While the subject matter and academic approach (including extensive preparatory studies) parallel his work in oil, the artist preferred watercolor for this sun-drenched picture because it allowed him ...

[image]Battle of Karbala - Abbas Al-Musavi
This painting commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Husayn, the grandson of the prophet Muhammad and the third imam, or leader, of the Shiʿa Muslims. Husayn was killed by the forces of the Umayyad caliph Yazid I (r. 680–683) in the desert of Karbala in central Iraq in 680 c.e. This battle emphasizes the divide between the Sunni and Shiʿa branches of Islam; Husayn led a resistance against what the Shiʿa Muslims believed was the Umayyads’ illegitimate rule...

Called “Lo Spagnoletto” (the little Spaniard) by his Italian clientele, the Spanish-born and trained Ribera made his career in Naples, where his major patron, the Duke of Osuna, served as viceroy to the Spanish Bourbon rulers of southern Italy. Following a Spanish tradition initiated by the famed painter El Greco (1541–1614), Ribera painted individual portraits of Christ’s intimates, including his father Saint Joseph and his disciples...
